RE: Gatorboard / Gatorfoam Revisited

Jim, one other option is to use some tall brass cones between the two maple boards. The ones shown have threaded stubs on the top -- I just drilled appropriate sized holes in the bottom of the Nott' platform and screwed them in. In your case, if the top of the cone was screwed into your top platform, the weight of the board and 'table pushing on the points at the bottom would probably sink them enough to give you some nice lateral stability (I have two cats, and know well the need). :) Or you could invert the cones with the points up and thread them into your bottom shelf. Either way it would be pretty darn stable. Just a thought...
